UPND President Hakainde
UPND President Hakainde

The Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Zambia Union Conference President, Harrington Akombwa has said that the SDA Church is alarmed by the malicious, regrettable and barbaric allegations made recently at a PF rally in Kabwe that UPND President Hakainde Hichilema is a Satanist.

Dr. Akombwa has told the media in a statement that Mr. Hichilema and his family are part of the SDA fellowship and have not hidden that fact.

Dr. Akombwa said that as a committed congregant, Mr. Hichilema has attended many church functions around the country and has been an unrelenting supporter of many church functions including camp meetings and rallies.

Dr. Akombwa stated that it is a known fact that Mrs Hichilema is a very committed Dorcas Society member.

Dr. Akombwa further said that it is for this reason that the SDA Church finds the allegations made recently that Mr. Hichilema is a Satanist and Mason not only barbaric but offensive and irrational.

He added that unfounded allegations such as these are not only an assault on the development of democracy but also carry the ability to breach the peace that Zambia has become synonymous with.

Dr. Akombwa has since appealed to the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ), Zambia Police, Acting Chief Justice and other concerned stakeholders to do all in their power to bring all those who are trying to disenfranchise the people by their cheap propaganda and breaching the Electoral Code of conduct to book.

And UPND Lubwa Ward Youth Chairman Chisankama Mudenda has said that UPND feels offended by such remarks and that former Orthodox Church Bishop Edward Chomba should apologize to Mr. Hichilema for such offensive remarks.

    • Yes I hope the Muslims and the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) should also come out in the open and say that they are offended for Edgar Chakolwa Muhammad Lungu to public deny that he belongs to their groupings. Edgar Lungu is not a Christian. Edgar Lungu is an acholic, Everybody in Chawama, Parliament , including Chikwanda knows this.

    • What the so called bishop said about HH has no place in our society and for such a person to even claim that he represents the Christian family is just abhorrent. He should not tarnish such a good religion. Christians are touched by Jesus and changed by Him. They are always considerate of others and how they treat people. Christians do not accuse others falsely not even their enemies.

    • @ANDERSON CHI*ALA that comment of yours is why you UPND chaps will always be considered as Satanists…as for the Zambia SDA Union leader why is he getting involved in politics and why is he being a hypocrite, a typical pharisee that killed Jesus as far as 2020vision is concerned they are all followers of Satan by true definition of the word..is the sabbath not supposed to be kept holy why has’nt this hopeless clergy man come out to condemn the campaigning on Saturday???

      Dr Akombwa if you do read this do you not know that HH sponsors Zambian Watch Dog a website that insulted and wished death on the late President, the site always incites violence and is extremely tribal in its reporting..that is a Satanic website and so are its sponsors.

    • Anyone who wishes someone sick or dead is a Satanist. A good example is the Zambian Watchdog. So if you support, sponsor or associate with the Zambian Watchdog it means you’re also a Satanist. I’ve heard Guy Scott condemn the Zambian Watchdog but I’ve never heard HH condemn them. I assume HH condones and approves the Zambian Watchdog and it’s values because most of the articles they write are in his praise. Mine is just an assumption please!

    • There too many Satanists from Zambian Watchdog trying to influence opinions on Lusaka Times. Luckily for you, there’s no censorship on Lusaka Times like on your ka malicious Satanic Watchdog. Always wishing people sick or dead. You’re already wishing Lungu sick. Maybe Seventh Day = Satanism. Why do they go to church on Saturday when everyone else goes on Sunday????

    • What was labeled as a Mason,whether true/not is HH and not the whole SDA movement. What Dr.Akombwa should have dealt with is the aspect of HH’s membership with the SDA, which he has and that of observing the Sabbath. Am not saying HH is a Mason,but I have watched a documentary on DSTv where a reverend openly said he is a freemason…..so being a member of a church cannot prevent someone from being an active member of the freemason.

    • The issue of who is anointed or not can also be checked by looking at events or the situation of an individual. This is a christian nation on Gods program.

      Windows 1964 : 1st Jubilee, First President > KK of UNIP.

      Windows 2014 : 2nd Jubilee, First President > HH of UPND.

      Can you see an upgraded programme in this pattern? When something keep repeating, take note. Divide UNIP into UPND you’ll have I/D. I ( independence ) achieved by Unip, D ( development ) to be achieved by Upnd.

      Any other starting programme will achieve LESS for the next 50 years until we have another upgrade in 2064, start of third jubilee !!

    • In PF we allowed the bishop to call one of your leaders, elder to SDA members, a Satanist because the entire SDA is a SATANIST Church. PF does care about you because our members are Catholics and our new leader, Mr. E. Lungu, doesn’t belong to any church.

    • What does the SDA Church has to say about not allowing its members to work on Saturdays. Will Mr. HH be allowed to discharge his presidential duties on a saturday or he will abscond from work? Presidency is not for rigid religious followers of any sect, dominion or cult. Zambians shall be wary of such fanatics. SDAs do not work on saturdays while they are paid the same amount as any other bank employee. Is it fair? They refuse to go underground to extract copper? Is it fair? They refuse to attend to any emergency on a saturday? Is it fair? If all were SDAs, our children, elderly and mothers will die in hospital for lack of anybody attending to them. HH might be a devoted SDA, well and good, but that is not acceptable for daunting job of President of Zambia. He is a Commander in Chief 24/7.

    • “Due to poor health, the campaign programme for PF candidate Edgar Lungu has been severely relaxed, even further.

      Medical records … show that Lungu has advanced, numeral ailments and one private clinical has recommended that he should go to India for specialist treatment.

      Though the PF would have loved to take Lungu across the country (and they have the capacity) within few days, Lungu has been unwilling and giving different excuses for his inertia. But people very close to his team have now disclosed that the main problem is poor health. The current by-election is due to the death of president Michael Sata, whom the PF swore was as fit as teen upto the day he died. – ZAMBIAN WATCHDOG

    • @24/7 worker, I think you are trying too hard to defame a religion/church you know very little about. Give it a rest bro!

      There are plenty of SDAs out there who do NOT agree with HH inspite of his religion. HH may be an SDA member but the race he is running is NOT a spiritual one but a political one. He is running as a politician, therefore he should be confronted or attacked for his politics. Not the religion he belongs to.

      With careless tribal speeches already out of control in our country, adding UNNECESSARY RELIGIOUS CONFLICTS/TENSIONS to that mix can only spell doom for mother Zambia—ask the Irish Catholics and Protestants how well that worked out for them!

      All these things you are spouting off about SDAs are only figments of your own imaginations. Be careful!

WHEN HH HAS BEEN INSULTING OTHER PEOPLE INCLUDING THE ACTING PRESIDENT YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN OFFENDED. THATS A STUPID IDEA FROM THE CHURCH OF SIDING ONLY WHEN ITS MEMBER MAYBE ONLY BY NAME HAS BEEN CALLED ONE OR TWO NAMES. HH HAS A LOOSE MOUTH THAT INSULTS ANYONE. THE LATE SATA ONLY USED TO IGNORE HIM. IF INSULTS WERE A VIRUS, SATA COULD HAVE DIED OF HH’s INSULTS. I AM NOT A FAN OF CHOMBA. IN FACT I DON’T EVEN KNOW HIM. BUT THE CHURCH SHOULDN’T GET INTO POLITIX OTHERWISE THEY WILL BE EMBARASSED BY THE NAMES THEY WILL BE CALLED. HOW MUCH HAS HH DONATED?

Churches have high numbers of the tribe depending on where they entered Zambia from. case in point one of the entry points of the New Apostolic Church was Western Province..but its still found in other countries..does that make it a Lozi Organisation? Don’t go around exposing your ignorance in public. Your embarrassing your forefathers for not teaching you common sense and Zambia as a whole.

  3. SDA. Church must pull out from this issue because the doctrine does not allow it to get involved in politics. Let HH alone who has the interest deal with this issue alone due to the fact that many politicians have been called all sought of names but their churches do not intervene to defend. You will embarrass the church,and at the end of the day these people(chomba and HH) will continue to communicate because these are politics.

OTHERWISE INTERESTED PARTIES WILL BE FORCED EVEN TO CHECK YOUR BANK ACCOUNTS. IT WON’T BE SURPRISING TO FIND SUDDEN LUMP SUMS OF MONIES FROM DUBIOUS SOURCES OR EVEN UNKNOWN SOURCES.

Pipos remember Mitt Romney of Republican party in USA,a Mormon who lost to Obama?Devout Christians do not compromise on their faith and do not want to be ruled by a deviant character.
      They make fun of all Christians whether catholic, protestants, born again, evangelical, Lutheran and Pentecostal or whatever section of grand Christian family.Zambians shall unite to vote for Edgar, Never, Edith, Elias, Miyanda but NO…

  13. Religion and Christianity can be poles apart.

    The so-called Bishop may just be a religious person, not touched by Christ.

    If HH was a Satanist, the so-called Bishop should have been praying for HH to be set free from Satanism. Nowhere in Scripture (which is the Primary source of our knowledge of the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ and of Christian Mission) do we hear Jesus name-calling anyone “Satanist”.

    Jesus was the Master Deliverer of those possessed by devils, and yet his disposition was that that of compassion towards one and all, knowing that the possessed were held hostage by Satan to do his evil desire in harming humanity.

    A true and mature Christian knows that our warfare is spiritual, and therefore, fought spiritually through prayer, the word and the name…

      The spokes persons’ defense of Mr Hichilema is weak as they say nothing about Mr Hichilema’s faith in the grace of God, other than mentioning HH’s associations and activities within the SDA family.

      Perhaps this is a matter that should have been left to HH to exploit and testify about his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (John 1.12-13; John 3.16; Romans 10.9-10), in an attempt to answer to the charge against him by the so-called prelate.

Get ready for suicide mwana because you’ll continue to be a frustrated and bitter cretin but unlike you satanists I will discourage you committing such an act and remember God loves you despite your clearly satanic behaviour…its not to late to repent and also vote for PF after that…

And as for the SDA getting involved in politics I dont see you crying when your father bwalya and basically the all Catholic church comes to the aid of the PF.

  21. What has freemason got to do with SDA for this church elder to defend a masonist? The botom line is HH may be SDA but he is a masonist and satanist. Him and watch dog wished MCS dead and none of SDA defended Sata. Sata’s blood is on HH and he is not immortal. I have joined freemason to avenge sata’s death no matter what it takes your days are numbered too. I rest my case.

  23. But from the time Lungu filed in his nominations, he has only held three rallies in Kabwe, Kasama and Luwingu. He can only manage one rally each day.

    But his main challenger, UPND’s Hakainde Hichilema has held 12 rallies in the same period, sometimes holding three rallies in a day. From the time of nominations, Hichilema has held rallies in Kitwe, Ndola, Mufulira, Chililabombwe, Luanshya, Kalulushi, Mpogwe and Masaiti.

    The latest plan by the PF is now to send lone MPs in their areas to campaign for Lungu. Some such as Harry Kalaba have already gone but are spreading bizarre messages to the people since they really have nothing to tell peasant farmers, unemployed youths, retirees and young people who can’t afford school fees. There is no dual carriageway in Bahati but food and…

  24. I THINK THE SDA CHURCH SHOULD BE CAREFUL. SOMETIMES CHURCH MEMEBERS DO THINGS THAT THE CHURCH MAY NOT BE AWARE OF. SO IS THE SDA CHURCH GOING TO APOLOGISE FOR CALLING ALL OF US WHO WORSHIP ON SUNDAY AS HAVING THE “MARK OF THE BEAST”. THIS TOO IS VERY OFFENSIVE TO SOME OF US. AND THAT BEAST IS SATAN. IN SHORT SDAs SAY THAT ALL OF US WHO WORSHIP ON SUNDAY DO WORSHIP SATAN. WE HAVE THE MARK OF SATAN. ELLEN G WHITE SAID THAT THE POPE WEARS A HART ON WHICH IT IS WRITTEN 666. THE MARK OF SATAN. IN SHORT AM SAYING THE CHURCH SHOULD NOT COME OUT SO OPENLY IN FAVOUR OF A PARTICULAR CANDIDATE. OTHERWISE EVERYTHING ABOUT HH WILL BE ASSOCIATED WITH SDA. NOT ALL THE BEANS ABOUT HH HAS BEEN SPILLED.

    • Cactus, Grand is on point. The SDAs believe contrary to what Jesus stood for. They will condemn you for doing anything on the Sabbath. So HH is supposed to rest on the Sabbath. He can go on campaign trails but when it is Sabbath, he is supposed to go to church if there is an SDA church in that location and only join the campaign team after Sabbath is over and continue his campaigns. It is not something that Grand has come up with but that is what the church believes in. NO WORKING ON SABBATH DAY. PERIOD!

  26. What this man who is NOT a bishop said about HH is abhorrent and reeks of ignorance that is endemic in the wide society in Zambia. The problem in Zambia is not lack of education, but ignorance. Religion is also partly to blame. There is no natural death is Zambia, all deaths are linked to supersitions. Churches are also fighting against each other. SDA is no exception. Some say they are a cult like the JW, and the mormons and with their bizarre doctrine of Ellen G White controversy continues like a her famous book.

    The other equally important and necessary step is for the law to act on slanderers through blogging online. It always surprises me the number of bloggers on LT who do not know the fact that each individual PC, iPad or Smartphone can be traced. (Note, I am not talking about the silly sim card registration).

From your argument, you might not agree with their doctrine, but that is their doctrine and I personally respect that. Serious SDA’s do no go for work on the Sabbath, they “cease fire” and do not study, they do not take tests/examination on the Sabbath, no weddings and the least goes on. The argument is that this “staunch SDA” elder and his wife are not observing the Sabbath.

    ANDREW BANDA CALLED SATA A SATANIST
    LUSAKA (AFP) – The son of Zambia’s former president Rupiah Banda was arrested Thursday on charges of defaming his father’s successor, his lawyer told AFP.
    Andrew Banda was picked up by police at a court, where he was answering unrelated charges of graft in connection with road building contracts.
    “He has been charged with the offence of defamation of the president but has been released without bond,” said lawyer Milner Katolo.
    Police claim that Andrew Banda told a recent political gathering not to go to Michael Sata’s rallies because the president is a Satanist and so they risked being sacrificed. He is expected to report to a police station on Friday…

In my view, it wakes up all SDA voting members in the country to stand up on January 20 and vote for one of their own the way the Catholic leadership has been doing defending Sata. While the president needs everyone’s vote, there is nothing wrong in a Church voting for its own like other churches. I am not an SDA but please SDA, use this as a wake up call!

You are holding a very Senior position and better be careful so as NOT to create an impression to some electorates to begin speculating that SDA is for UPND.

    Medical records seen by the Watchdog (but withheld just for now) show that Lungu has advanced, numeral ailments and one private clinical has recommended that he should go to India for specialist treatment.

    Though the PF would have loved to take Lungu across the country (and they have the capacity) within few days, Lungu has been unwilling and giving different excuses for his inertia. But people very close to his team have now disclosed that the main problem is poor health. The current by-election is due to the death of president Michael Sata, whom the PF swore was as fit as teen upto the day he died. The Watchdog first revealed that Sata was not fit when he collapsed.

    • @HardbullZ, SDAs do not celebrate any of our Lord’s days. They do not celebrate Christmas, Easter or any other festival associated with Christianity. The only day they follow is Sabbath, Friday sunset to Saturday sunset. They actually deny the existence of our Lord Jesus Christ as they follow what Jews follow and nothing else. They are hidden supporters of those who killed our Lord. If SDA followers are not satanists then who is? HH used to call late Sata a satanist to preempt the onslaught.

      You will both appreciate though that none of this is out of malice or slander to the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ by the Adventists. It’s rather out of ire that the pagans of Western Europe were the ones who hatched the idea of Christmas in the first place.

      It is commonly touted that the Christmas date was borrowed from pagan celebrations. The Romans had their mid-winter Saturnalia festival in late December; the barbarians of northern and western Europe kept holidays at similar times. To top it off, in 274 C.E., the Roman emperor Aurelian established a feast of the birth of Sol Invictus (the Unconquered Sun), on December 25. Christmas, so goes the argument as embraced by the Adventists, is a spin-off from these pagan solar festivals.

      May it further interest you both that in about 200 C.E., a Christian scholar in Egypt, Clement of Alexandria, made reference to the date Jesus was born. According to him, several different days had been proposed by various Christian groups. Surprising as it may seem, Clement doesn’t mention December 25 at all. Clement writes: “There are those who have determined not only the year of our Lord’s birth, but also the day; and they say that it took place in the 28th year of Augustus, and in the 25th day of [the Egyptian month] Pachon [May 20 in our calendar].

  59. @CACTUS, Its good to do good on Sabbath. Ask HH himself he will tell you that campaigning on Sabbath for his personal gain is not only wrong but sin before GOD. Its good to help the sick on Sabbath, feed the hungry and many more charitable works. The bible Exodus 20: 8-11 says keep the Sabbath day and keep it holly for in 6 days God created the heavens and the earth. What holiness is there during campaigns? Like I said, HH and AKOMBWA knows very well about it. As for DR. Akombwa, God will deal with him for using his name in vain. This is very serious matter before GOD.

  61. Some of you may already know this while it may come as a shock to some of you. Many SDAs think the Catholic church is a satanic church and the Pope is the anti-Christ.

    My point being that, this whole finger pointing of who is a satanist and who is not is really worth as much as chicken manure.

    • @PF Chief bootlicker, I suppose according to you, a true Adventist can NOT mix with a dishonest Tax collector, can NOT go to a home of such a dishonest person, and can certainly NOT eat on the same table with such a dishonest person.
      I am sure you find it very inconvenient that our Lord Jesus Christ himself mixed with, went to the home, and even ate with such dishonest people. I am sure to you, our Lord Jesus Christ qualifies only as a nominal member in SDA.
      You my friend you have missed the plot completely, and thereby missed the depth and true strength of being a Christian.

  62. I am very disappointed by our union president for becoming so political. May be he would have just said he is a member of the church. Being offended for what ?
    I have heard this HH of yours insulting Dr Scot by the same insult Nkombo said in parliament.
    This is a man who claims to be an elder, but he can insult in the media. Its realy a shame

  63. Mr Akombwa let HH and Chomba sort their mess.Indoshi shileshibana so don’t think if HH congregates with you then you know what else he does.what if Rev.Chomba and HH are members of the mentioned cults?After all if you want to get rich you just join the freemasons.

  64. Dr. Akombwa, I am so disappointed that you commented on the aforementioned story. Leave what belongs to Ceaser to Ceaser. Mind you I am a strong Adventist, your comments represent our church and I don’t you represented it well. Stay away from politics and concentrate on straightening our church in Zambia. Do you have a lot of connections with HH? Pray about it.

  66. Foolish ones don’t read the bible says churches should not be involved in politics. Which verse are you basing your arguments on? None in scriptures. Prophets including Jesus Christ talked politics in the bible though they didn’t resign to go politics full time. Clergy must provide guidance to their flock so that they can go the will of God and not man’s. Clergy from God hears from Him and tell the people what to do and what not to. All the prophets of old were political but on the side of God. READ the bible and stop decieving others. SDA’s president has done well to defend his own and if he can’t who can? Chomba was hired by Lungu’s team and disowning him is a lesson to many of you supporting Edgar. he will abandon you. Anyway HH is rising in support all over Zam

  67. @65 & @66 UMWAUME, lets get the facts of this story straight here. It is NOT HH accusing Bishop Chomba of horrendous murders of babies and drinking of their blood, no. It is the other way round. A well known SDA member is publicly being slandered in such a hurtful and sadistic manner.
    And you find it wrong for SDA to say NO to such revolting accusations?
    So to you King Solomon’s example in scripture to seek wisdom from God is meaningless? Is for selfish gain?
    Is it going too far into politics to pray for HH, EL & Guy Scott, etc.. regardless, as our Country prepares to vote? There is no good in campaigning righteously?
    So to SDA the Lord Jesus Christ’s word in Mark 2: 23-28 is subordinate to Exodus 20: 8 – 11, even though Jesus clearly says what he says in Mark?
    Are you…

  68. You call yourself Dr.We know you are a pastor for benefits. you are just like a politician. Are you God to start defending HH, don’t you know the parable of tares? As a true adventist one should not even be involved in politics according to the spirit of prophecy and the Bible. If he a true adventist he wouldn’t have been campaigning on sabbath days and frequenting all churches just to get public approval by being unequally yoked with unbelievers. Does one become adventist by funding your lavish life styles.

  69. @CACTUS, Understand this my good brother. There is nothing wrong in prayinf for HH or doing good things on sabbath as Jesus did. We dont know the real truth concerning HH’s satanism story. HH himself knows it better. Now lets assume that he is indeed a satanist, can Jesus or Akombwa defend him? Probably Jesus would even rebuke him. Such things are difficult to know and prove because they are done in secrecy and a spiritual leader should distance himself from speculations. Defending someone on the basis of being a church member without knowing his real life is abuse of GOD’S name. Look the reason your AKOMBWA gave to defend HH, he is our member, he contributes to camp meetings….bla….bla….Any way GOD knows better. Enjoy your festive season my brother. I will going to vote anyway.

  70. Our churches should not rekindle fires about to go off. Without supporting Bishop Chomba’s remarks I feel SDA is taking the issue personal. They should rather help their member forgive his offenders than to add salt to the woulnd.
    Another approach the church must perceive issues is by thinking than one can belong to the real church and still worship idols. We do have satanists, witches etc in genuine churches and its not the duty of churches to clarify such accusations but rather the accused himself. I like the approach taken by HH to sue his accuser who must give evidence or be convicted. Church, we respect you so much. Don’t take the issue personal. My advice.

  71. Ba PF, let’s have a clean campaign even if it’s not plain sailing for you. Let we, the people, choose the next President of Zambia.
    And before you label innocent citizens as satanists, think about how you got yourself into power: you have damaged this country’s moral fabric by trying to paint blatant lies as a normal way of conducting politics. You lied your way into power, you have continued telling lies by trying to take credit for projects that are not your brain child, and you even lied your way to the death of your leader. And now you even call lies as legacy or vision to be carried forward. Be informed that lies are some of the tools of satanists.

  72. Akombwa speak for yourself SDA is not your team a neither is it for Tongas. Why do you want to bring our church into politics you hypocrite ! Politics are the foolish pipo because in politics there are insults, lies and all sorts of bad things. So be careful don’t drag the church of God into politics. Go join UPND and stop eating with both hands. Am sure you were paid to say that.

    Maureen is suspected to have gone to plead for political space for the UPND and Hakainde Hichilema.
    Maureen was driving a Toyota Hilux ALZ 1096

    UPND IS NOW PANICKING…..SENSING DEFEAT

  74. As an SDA, I must say I’m deeply disappointed with Akombwa for bringing the name of the church into disrepute in the public domain. Ordinarily, I should have used the ‘normal’ channel of writing to him in person, or indeed, through the normal church channel to register my disapproval, but since he has decided to disregard church protocol, which demands that he seeks opinion and vote from the general membership before he can publish such sensitive, and political statements, I will sadly follow suit and denounce his stance publicly! I therefore, wish to personally distance myself from the position the pastor has taken, and advise him to join politics if he so wishes without dragging the church into the mud! He doesn’t own it!
